Frustration of the Day
me: hey, dad? where are the stamps?
dad: in the drawer next to the phone. and i'm sorry we only have christian stamps (they have a picture of baby jesus and mother mary).
me: why would you apologize for that?
dad: oh, i thought you were anti-christian now.
me: no, i'm not anti-christian. i'm just pro-interfaith relations and equality between all the religions.
dad: oh, okay.
me: dad, what did you mean when you said you thought i was anti-christian?
dad: well, you never post anything about christianity (i'm assuming he's talking about my facebook).
me: christians don't need sticking up for.
dad: oh, okay.
me: i don't understand how me sticking up for islam makes me anti-christian. christians don't need to be stood up for.
dad: well, i'm just going off of everything you post. you only post about islam.
me: just because i stick up for islam doesn't make me anti-christian. just like just because i stick up for homosexuals doesn't mean i'm anti-heterosexual. (tearing up) and it really hurts my feelings that you would say something like that.
dad: well, i'm sorry. i didn't mean to hurt your feelings. i was just going off of what i see.
this is so unlike my dad. i'd expect something like this from my mom, but not from my dad. so just because i've been trying to change people's false preconceived notions about islam, i'm anti-christian? this really upsets me. i'm such a daddy's girl, and for him to say something like this to me breaks my heart.
